I watched one episode of the programme Child Genius on channel 4. Well, intrigued I was.
I am sure most of the children have a higher than average IQ and doing maths puzzles for fun, it maybe the thing that they get enjoyment from.
But to be honest, watching it I felt a little sad.
None of them seemed happy.
But happy? Not sure.
Both my children are in school, S in year 3 and C in reception.
Tonight both children have come home from school with their school report. And, they are good.
I am really proud of the progress they have made this year.
Are they exceptional, no.
But are they happy?
I would say so.
In life, what would you prefer, to be a genius or happy?
I would choose happiness every time.
